the senate. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar is live from washington, d.c. for us this morning. brianna, speaker boehner seemed to be offering the president on olive branch earlier this week when he talked about the possibility of increasing revenue. but here he's taking a hard stance against tax increases. what does that say about the chances of a compromise? >> well, it may actually sound kind of like it's splitting hairs. but it's really two different things where he's talking about increasing tax rates. he says he's not okay with that. but he would be maybe okay, maybe amenable to increasing revenue. to bringing in more tax dollars, because there is a difference. and what he's saying is part of a chorus of conciliatory language that we're hearing from democrats and republicans on the hill. listen to more of what john boehner said in that interview. >> -- talk about all kinds of things we may disagree. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows this. he knows that he and i can work together. the election's over. now it's time to get t

against human desire. back cannot work. i am a student at george washington university. there is a large push from the and the price of a community about legalization of marijuana. -- from the undergraduate timidity about legislation and marijuana. could this lead to a nationwide reform movement? >> it is different. i presume the undergraduate movement at gwi is people who want to get something. temperance movement was to deny somebody else opportunity to get something. the women's movement that was the firast mass move apart -- movement for prohibition was very noble. women were victimized by prohibition in horrible ways. women have no voting rights, the bourse was a rarity. -- women had no voting rights, divorce was a rarity. it was an effort to free the family, free women from this. it is hard to get my arms around comparison between that and an undergraduate desire for marijuana. >> most major changes in the country, from popular movements, some of them start on college campuses, some in other places. >> there is a meaningful parallel. it is generational. the same generation that is
on whether she even has the temperament to be secretary of state. that's a big question in washington, d.c. let me say it again. does susan rice have the temperament to be secretary of state? there are a lot of people, democrats who will tell you privately that just maybe she doesn't. but we're not talking about this. this is a clown show that's going on right now. what is -- >> i love that debate. >> well, the long game is unclear and the short game is even more unclear because they're not going to hold up the nomination of susan rice. i meaning if you look at the big picture. they only need to peel off -- i don't know what the number is five or six republican senators. >> who do they end up making stronger? >> they make the obama white house or susan rice look stronger but fighting the fight, three, four, five of them on a losing cause and won't hold up the nomination with four senators. >> it would appear that prior to yesterday that this was all a political passing storm that would get through this and speak behind closed doors and get through this or she would get through this but m

. a conservative that will get things done instead of the yapping that goes on in washington d.c. right now. [applause] our country has huge problems, structural problems that require people that actually want to solve problems rather than just talk about it or excuse the way why it is that things are working. you know, president obama was dealt a tough hand. we hear this everyday if you watch tv. and of course it's my brother's fault for everything that goes on. it's almost as though the dog ate my homework is the reason we're going through tough times. but let me tell you mitt romney from day one, job one will be to restore the american economy so people can purr shoe their dreams as they see fit by limited government and build capacity so people don't have to get in line and be dependent upon government. no one wants to do that. we want a society where the next generation has more opportunities than what we have. and the american dream is what this election is about. are we going to reverse the track we're on which is a false sense of economic security where we get in line and have the g
of washington, d.c. and even in florida outside of tampa, they're seeing big turnout numbers there, too. they don't think he can get his 2008 turnout numbers but, scott, as you know tonight, it's going to be all about turnout. >> pelley: yes, it will, jan, thank you very much. the candidate who gets his voters to the polls is likely to win today. norah, turnout is everything and the electorate's been changing since 2008. >> it has. that's one of the things i'm going to be looking at tonight. not only how big is the turnout but the size of the electorate. the different democrat graphic groups. we saw as i pointed out during our evening news that 26% of the electorate in 2008 was a minority electorate. does that grow? does it stay the same or shrink? that will be part of it. the white vote which was about 73% of the vote where will that be tonight? it will speak to not only the changing nature of the country's electorate but also give us clues about which candidate is doing better. >> pelley: bob, the national polls over the last few days, dead heat. dead even for both candidates. it's re
in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris christie. and just yesterday we saw president obama and chris christie in new jersey surveying the damage. let's listen to what they had to say about each other. >> i cannot thank the president enough about his concern and the compassion for our state. i heard it on the phone skand w able to witness it today
in washington, d.c. we have a spectacular show for you. i promise you i'll do my best to make sure you don't miss bill one little bit. from the bipartisan center, dan glickman and congressman joins us this morning as well as jonathan on his excellent new piece on the post-election america in "new york" magazine. zeke miller, share our strength chief officer and comedian dino, your muslim pal. we'll be having a lot of great guests, talking about mitt romney's ultimate screw you which he gifted us with yesterday and general petraeus, the c.i.a. had no idea when he said i wanted to tap that, he meant something completely different. let's go to lisa ferguson for a current news update. >> hey john. always good to have you on the show. good morning everyone. the president is dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy today. he heads to new york this morning to look at the damage and to thank first responders who risked their lives last month. later this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "l
around washington. on the other hand, the big strength for governor romney is down in coal country, down in southeastern virginia. then governor romney probably has a better chance around norfolk because of those defense issues down there that you just heard john dickerson talk about. so when we get a better feel as to where most of this vote is turning how the, we'll have a better feel as to whose actually ahead. >> pelley: nora, this gives canada them alot of confidence. >> virginia is key. they feel good about virginia because of that heavy turnout. those exit polls we talked about 52% of the electorate is female. it was actually 54% in 2008. these numbers can change a little bit but suggest the female vote is down a little bit. and one of the toughest fights we saw over women voters was actually in virginia. the after that debate where there was that discussion about binders full of women, romney immediately went on the air in virginia with an ad saying that he is for contraception and then obama came back with another ad contradicting that sniesmght thank yo.>> pelley: thank you .
at the washington post national poll. they took a look across the country and found this race tied. 48% each. that does left 4% undecided. i will get to that in just a minute. let's take a look at the real clear politics national average. they take the polls and combine them and take the average. 1/10 percent lead for president obam a. again, you have 4%, or 5% undecided. the question i keep asking, david, is if after four years of an obama administration, people are undecided, might they not be inclined to try the guy who hasn't had the office yet? >> they might. we have seen in past electrics, where undecided voters at this late date, by and large go with the challenger. but the question, too, given how decide divided the country is, are they going to show up? if they don't, who does that hurt? who does that help? it also is interesting because you have this race, by and large, focused on about 10 battleground states, very intensely treally hasn't been a national campaign, given that everybody's been traveling to the same, you know, 8 to 10 states. i think that, you know, could have an eff
across the country are urging washington to get it back to the before it's too late. they're gathering in washington, d.c. to lay out the issues their cities will face if there's no compromise. pretty serious issues, by the way. among the mayors there, democrat mayor michael nutter of philadelphia and republican mayor scott smith of mesa, arizona. mr. mayors, you were both at the white house last week before the president met with congressional leaders. what was your sense of where things stood and what was your message to the president? >> well, i was pleased to be there with the u.s. conference of mayors and vice president, scott smith who is on the show and i was serving as president. other mayors, probably a total of 14 of us, talking with vice president biden last thursday afternoon about the situation that we need a balanced, bipartisan approach to dealing with the issue of cuts, as well as revenues. these are serious matters that can affect cities all across the united states of america. you cannot solely cut your way out of the amount of debt that we have. so this issue must be
cliff is looming, and washington will need to strike a deal in the next week and a half if they want to avoid tax hikes and spending cuts. john boehner is asking to outline a plan and get fellow republicans on board. ryan will likely be under the most pressure to back away from his conservative politics. his run for vp no doubt brought him some new-found respect and political clout amongst his colleagues. they say they will confident they will be able to reach some sort of a deal by the engineer of the deal, they need to be at an impasse when it comes to taxes. they said any deal to reduce the deficit should come through pro-gross reforms. that means things like lowers rates, and closing loopholes. >> just to close loopholes is far too little money, and they have said they weren't it to be revenue neutral. the president has been very clear, that the higher-income people have to pay their fair share. >> that means no deal from the democrats if republicans will not agree to raise taxes on the wealthy, but pelosi says she is optimistic. more john coming up after
talked about the campaign heating up again. and if you look at a poll from abc news,/"washington post," the question was, likely voters' views to the response to hurricane sandy, president obama was excellent or good, 78%, not so good or poor, 8%. no opinion was relatively high for governor romney. mark preston thinks that the president's handling of this disaster will lead directly to more votes for him. do you agree? >> i think it's quite possible. the president is doing what the president does best. i mean, you've heard governor christie say that he had talked to the president six times, and when he got together with him, he could feel the compassion that he felt over the phone. and that says a lot. here we have two men, who truly care about their country, coming together. and i think that's basically what america wants. they're tired, soledad, of all the bickering and nothing getting done. and the fact is that they came together, and i think that the president has taken the appropriate action. i'm very impressed. >> let's take a look at the battleground states and the polls that c
